Why Vitamins?


Millions of children around the world are suffering from ‘hidden hunger’, a lack of micronutrients that can lead to disease and even death. In fact, 45% of all childhood deaths are attributable to undernutrition. Together, we can change that.

Vitamin A saves lives

An estimated 190 million children under five suffer from vitamin A deficiency, a major underlying cause of child mortality. With your help, we can reduce under-five child mortality by about 24% in at-risk populations.

Multivitamins increase potential

Multivitamins reduce the effects of undernutrition in children under five, increasing their potential for educational and economic achievements.

Vitamins are the world’s best investment

Every $1 spent on micronutrient supplementation creates $17 in benefits, making vitamins an incredibly cost-effective way to impact global health and prosperity.
